Yessiree folks: THE DELETE ZONE, 
deleted since early 1980, is Back! 

Since last we spoke, I have 
entered the VCR Age and have man- 
aged to acquire lots of stuff like 
10/16ths of the entire GODZILLA 
cycle and around a third of the 
Supermarionation output of 
England's famed Gerry and Sylvia 
Anderson's 1966-70 production 
period, I also maintain a healthy 
exchange of wrestling shows off 
local TV with friends far away. 

For my personal video Hits And 
Misses as we wrap up the first 
half of the Eighties, on the "+" 
side.., HITCH-HIKER'S GUIDE TO THE 
GALAXY, the Great ALL-NIGHT SHOW 
with Charles the Security person, 
"V", HILL STREET BLUES, NEWHART, 
revivals of oldsters like OUTER 
LIMITS, THE PROFESSIONALS, NEW 
AVENGERS, RAT PATROL, GREEN HORNET 
...but Where-0-Where have you 
local programmers hid THE MONKEES? 
Other visual hits include LIQUID 
SKY, ERASERHEAD, the MAD MAX films 
and SUPERMAN TOO, BLADE RUNNER, 
ELEPHANT PARTS, HUNGER, THIS IS 
SPINAL TAP and Several juicy X- 
rated features I had to go to 
Montreal these past two summers to 
see. Misses? Most of the whole 
slew of Dead Teenager Parts movies 
which we as a nation must take 
partial blame for. And anything 
with Chuck Norris. STAY TUNED...

U2 "THE UNFORGETTABLE FIRE ,f 
Sounds like Led Zeppelin. 

HUSKER DU "ZEN ARCADE" 

All the backwards guitar and 
piano on Side 3 makes this LP 
sound like PURPLE RAIN. Not as 
great as METAL CIRCUS, but just 
fine. 

TOTEN HQSEN "OPEL GANG" 

Brilliant LP by the best punk 
group in the world right now, 
and they never get a mention 
in the trendy shitrags. 

RAMONES "TOO TOUGH TO DIE" 

The inventors of punk rock (70s 
style) are back with their best 
LP since END OF THE CENTURY. 
It's nowhere near as contrived 
as the last two, and has plenty 
of references to earlier songs 
(ie: compare "Endless Vacation" 
to "Beat On The Brat"). They're 
not pioneers anymore, but they 
are a modern high class act. I 
hope they release as many LPs 
as The Kinks and Lou Reed, with 
whom they share an adult dignity 
matched by nobody else in the 
world of pop music.

ELECTION REFLECTION 
Yeah, the election race was good. 
If Mondale had ? we been elected, we'd 
have a "President" again: very dull 
stuff. With Reagan re-elected, we'll 
have four more years of the Wizard 
of Oz. THAT'S why I want Reagan, 
after much careful thought. 

For four years the White House 
has been the Emerald City, attract- 
ing the proverbial scarecrows and 
tin-men from across the country, who 
set out on quixotic and insane 
quests to get to Washington to "talk 
to him" or to "give him advice" or 
to "give him a present"... or to 
blow his fucking head off. These 
demented modern-day Don Quixotes set 
out thousands of miles away in 
broken-down cars, ending up in front 
of the White House gates (and 
quickly arrested). Something com- 
pletely different. We've been 
pummelled and brutalized by images 
and pictures of him and Nancy, the 
crowned Queen of Unreality. One day 
a beautiful Hollywood starlet; the 
next day, from a slightly different 
angle, a 100-year-old bitch. 

How many insane people know 
Reagan? Raise your hands! Take a 
head count! ALL of them know Reagan. 
They mutter his name from the deep- 
est of lively lunatic slumbers. And 
Nancy? Gentle consolation for pri- 
soners in every jail and mad-house. 
THAT'S why we elected him. After 
another four years things '11 NEVER 
be the same. We don't want a 
President - we want the Wizard of 
Oz! Seriously - things would 've 
been much duller with Mondale (not 
that I think he had much of a chance 
anyway). In the last few years, TEN 
times more people have been arrested 
trying to crash the White House 
gates. Reagan touches a strange 
nerve in us. If Mondale had won, 
there 'd be no use in ANY of us going 
down to Washington to hang out at 
the gates. 

It's impossible to completely 
define the effect Reagan's had on us 
- but it sure hasn't been dull. 
Don't you think in Canada this elec- 
tion has attracted more attention 
than ANY of the others? The dullest 
election was Carter vs. Ford. With 
THIS one, there was the element of 
Raw Fear.
